OTTAWA, September 14, 2022 – The RVCA is concluding work updating floodplain mapping along the realigned portion of the Van Gaal Drain in the Village of Richmond.

Members of the public are invited to review the draft regulation and hazard maps during the public consultation period between September 12 to October 14, 2022. Draft mapping is available online at www.rvca.ca/vangaal and members of the public can connect with an RVCA Resource Specialist to understand how the mapping may affect their property. RVCA Resource Specialists can be reached by email () or phone (613-692-3571 or 1-800-267-3504 ext. 1132 or 1193).

A public open house will also take place on October 5, 2022 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre (6095 Perth Street, Richmond).  

The new mapping shows areas that are subject to natural hazards such as flooding and unstable slopes. The mapping will be used by the City of Ottawa when updating its Official Plans and Zoning Schedules and in the review of development applications under the Planning Act. RVCA will also use the mapping to guide the review of development applications submitted under the RVCA’s Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses Regulation.

The goal of this mapping is to help ensure that sound planning decisions are made — keeping people and property safe.
